Hair Expo is the major hairdressing trade show in the southern hemisphere and the 2004 show is once again at Sydney's Convention and Exhibition centre on the 12th, 13th and 14th of June. VirtualHairCare was there to check out all the latest hairstyle inovations and hair predictions so look out for more hair tips and information site wide.

Australia is known for its fine editorial work and the Hair Expo finalists set the trend in new looks for the year to come. These looks are used as a benchmark by both trade and consumers across the world.

Winning salons and stylists are marked in gold.
